1. Thanks, everyone, for the suggestions on the restaurant tomorrow. I believe the boss has decided on Iggie's. Expect a full report in a couple of days. We're seeing "Crumbs From the Table of Joy" tomorrow night. I've heard it's very good.
2. Tomorrow I'm having a guest speaker in my classroom - Eugenia W. Collier, author of the classic short story "Marigolds". It's the second year in a row in which she'll be visiting my classroom, and I'm excited. This means driving across the city to her retirement home, picking her up by 7:15, then driving her into school, providing lunch, then driving her home at the end fo the day. But it's all worth it, and she's a kind woman who the kids generally love to hear talk. I hope I don't work her too hard by asking her to speak to 6 groups of kids; she is 79 years old.
3. I really, really, really want to talk about something top secret, but I can't. Ooh, it's good though. (Actually, not really, but if you know me, ask me.)
4. I am attempting to make a tuna log for my guest speaker tomorrow. My attempts at cooking - or even combinging ingredients, as this recipe calls for - is a drastic change from my usual diet of microwaved veggie burgers and Trader Joe's cereal. I hope I don't screw it up.
